The development studio behind Hotline Miami is working on a sequel to the killing spree simulator, according to a tweet sent by developer Jonatan "Cactus" Söderström.
Söderström hinted at the sequel by tweeting: "Working while listening to the sweet tunes of a preliminary Hotline Miami 2 soundtrack that we've put together during the weekend."
When Eurogamer asked whether this meant his studio was working on a sequel to Hotline Miami, Söderström confirmed that a second game is indeed in the works, but the studio has not decided on the music for it yet.
"Last time we had nine different musicians doing the soundtrack. Looks like a couple of them might do more tracks for the sequel, but we've been looking at some other bands as well. Want to keep it fresh," he said.

Just want to make it clear that we're still working on fixing Hotline Miami, we haven't actually started working on anything new yet!— Jonatan Söderström (@cactusquid) November 26, 2012
We only have some general plans for the next game.— Jonatan Söderström (@cactusquid) November 26, 2012
When Eurogamer asked if Hotline Miami's downloadable content was being expanded to a full game, Söderström said that the studio would be making the originally planned DLC bigger in terms of the number of levels, and as a result "it feels reasonable to release it as a full game rather than a DLC."
Söderström added that the studio has "barely begun working on it" and the main priority right now is to patch up the first game.
